  1. I am kinda new to hockey and have been skating on my tacks 9060 skates for a while now. I use them between 3-5 times a week. I got the sb black steel, and the steel shows some type of wear. Can someone see if they are ruined? Do you recommend putting in another (type of) steel?http://
  2. Somehow the steel on the skate is bent (front to back). Just slightly. You can barely see it with your eye. I was only able to confirm this was the case when I put a straight edge against the side of the blade. The inside edge towards the middle was gone and I just assumed he stepped on something. So we had them sharpened again...same thing...sharpen...same thing. Now I know something is odd. That's when I figured out it was bent. This is on my son's skates, CCM size 4.5. He plays PWAA so he is a competitive skater, but doesn't have the weight and impact of an adult player. Any idea how something like this happens? Sure it could have happened during a game, but I would have thought for him to have hit something hard enough you would see some sort of evidence. Puck mark on the blade holder, chip in the blade, etc. Someone suggested heat from being left in the trunk of the car, but that seems like a stretch.
  3. Let me know if you've heard of @ByonicSkateBlades and your thoughts on skate blades in general. Check us out www.bbyonic.com.
  4. I am relatively new to hockey and have been sharpening my kid's skates (and her teammates) for about a year. I have had very good results and feedback. But yesterday I got a pair of CCMs and I noticed that I was having trouble sharpening them. I took a close look at the runners and the thickness of the runners tapers from the usual .115" near the plastic holder to .100" or so at the edge that contacts the ice. You can actually see the falloff of the thickness of the metal as it nears the ice contact edge by holding a starrett straight edge to the face of the runner. I have not seen this on any other runners. The dad who gave me the skates said the CCM runners were brand new. So my question is whether this is an intentional part of the design or a manufacturing defect or something that happened on first sharpening when they were purchased? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Vapor 7.0 Used about 2 years for Moderate level of play. Steel keeps Curving inward even after Changing Holders and changing Steel and Changing Nut and Bolt?! What in the F**N Hell is going on Here?!?!
  6. A friend of mine is having a really hard time with breaking steel and I've never heard of someone breaking steel like this before, so I thought I would ask here to get some thoughts on it ( @oldtrainerguy28 @JR Boucicaut ) My buddy is a husky guy who prefers a short 8' profile as he grew up on it due to the way the sharpener cut skates back then. He's recently dropped down to a 5/8 hollow from a 1/2 as well. In the last 8 weeks or so he has broken 5 blades and has never broken steel before. At first he was using LS2 on his Nexus skates, then I believe went through another 2 sets of LS2 before switching his holders and steel out to Edge holders and LS4. He broke the LS4 after only skating on them 2-3 times and then broken another set of LS3 (I think) again last night on a pass from the D form the corner to the high slot area (pass was average speed, not a zinger by any means). I would imagine using a shorter profile this would put more pressure on the steel contacting the ice (more pressure on less steel) but I've never heard of someone going through so many blades before. Any ideas as to what's going on here?
  7. Hey all! First off, I know practically nothing about this stuff. I have always just laced my skates and skated. I've been skating on LS2 steel since I purchased my Bauer Supreme 70's back in 2007? Maybe earlier? It had the factory profile on it, 9? I just bought some custom VH skates that came with Step steel. I had a few questions for all the knowledgeable folks here. First, my skating-- 1. I ref 100+ high school games a year. (A lot of 4-man, so quite a bit of standing still) 2. I play around 25 recreational adult league games a year. 3. I have been skating on super dull, grounded down (Banana?) blades for the past 8ish years. I rarely sharpen my skates. There's probably 1/4 steel left, and it's been that way for years. 4. I am hoping to get another 10ish years on these skates/blades. Questions? 1. Should I profile my Step to match the 9 profile on the LS2? 2. Should I grind down, or leave the extra toe and heel that comes with Step? 3. Should I grind some steel off in order to somewhat match the height of old blades? Now, I'm sure I've been sacrificing some abilities by using my current set up. So, I am open to ideas on what would be best! TIA!
